We have two Year 4 classes at Tudor School. 4U’s class teacher is Miss Scott and she is assisted by Miss Penn. 4V’s class teacher is Miss Grundy and she is assisted by Mrs Gordon along with Mr Wendleken and Mr Fernandez-Winfield. The classes are also regularly taught by Mrs Graham.
Both classes enjoy a weekly sports session with Mr Higgins on Monday afternoons, as well as swimming on a Tuesday morning. Please ensure pupils have the correct kit in school for these sessions.
Have a look at our current topic web to give you further detail on the areas of study. Please bear in mind that this is a working document and the plans will be adjusted to suit the children in the class and their interests as well as adapting and incorporating interesting activities and events as they come up, if they are useful for our learning.
Our topic this term is ‘Is It Right To Fight?’. During this topic we will be exploring what life was like during both the First and Second World Wars and considering why wars take place.
In English, we will be investigating a range of text types linked to these wars, including both fiction and non-fiction. We will be starting off by writing our own newspaper reports and will be going on to share fiction texts which are set during one of the world wars.
Our Science focus this term will be on Light and Shadows. We will be finding out about how shadows are made and about how these change during the course of the day, linking this to the Blitz. We will also be exploring healthy eating within the context of World War Two rationing.
In Art we will be using a range of techniques to create artwork based on both world wars. We will also be making our own World War Two recipes in Design and Technology.
As well as undertaking research in Computing, we will be learning about coding, including code-breaking, and developing our programming skills.
